Since its reopening, the cinema has done a great deal of engagement work with schools in the local community and across London. In partnership with the University of Westminster, the community outreach team are committed to providing enriching opportunities for young people that promote both the heritage of the cinema and discussion related to the curriculum. Topics include themes such as identity, diversity and aspiration showcased through the medium of film. We welcome students from all Key Stages and schools.
